Only a few days ago was it that I wrote about one of my all-time favorite movies "Invictus". It is about how Nelson Mandela (played by Morgan Freeman!!) helps this white Rugby player (Matt Damon) to grow stronger as a person. He is motivated to be strong and support his team.
Actually, the movie's theme song and central image is based on the eponymous (same-named) poem by William Ernest Henley in 1875. This poem was one of Mandela's favorite ones, which he would regularly quote.
It is a great poem and especially a great, great movie!
Please, please do watch it - you will not be disappointed. I promise.
In fact, I have had this list for a long time now of people I would love to meet one day. For various reasons. Possibly because they are motivational, inspirational, an idol, or just for the "fun-factor".
Now, guess who the very top person on that list was…
I will publish the rest of this list by tomorrow, so be sure to check back for this .. :)
If you would like to add anything about Mandela or commemorate and pay tribute to him, please do comment below!
I sincerely hope that this fantastic man may rest in peace, the peace he has created himself and by which he has changed a nation and influenced the entire world.
Thank you, Nelson.
